A tractor-trailer crashed into the side of the Baltimore Convention Center early Wednesday morning. 

The crash happened after a semi truck missed the right turn from I-395 onto Conway Street by Camden Yards. The truck careened through the metal gate and smashed into the wall.

Security guards at the Convention Center said it was very foggy around the time of the crash.

Officials say the driver is okay and no one else was injured. 

The wall that the truck crashed into is a barrier wall for the Convention Center that is designed to take the force of accidents like this one, on the other side is a maintenance room and above is a patio. 

Chemical sand was placed on the on the sidewalk to soak up the gas spilled.
